Baltimore-Washington Beer Works The Raven Special Lager

I had a bottle of The Raven at The Raven, Virginia Beach, VA.


I got this beer on draft today (20110924) and I wrote the following: "Not much of a smell. Very drinkable. Nice, easy taste. Very low amount of carbonation. Just slightly bitter. Overall it's good." 8:24 pm

[20111012][20160917 Edit]

While waiting for the opening band of the San Fermin concert to start, my friends and I decided to have a drink. With only two beers on draft, I decided to go with "The Raven Lager $6 (5.25%)." I later had the New Belgium Spring Blonde Ale.

I wrote: "This Raven Lager has a much crispier taste than the Dos Equis Ambar I had earlier tonight. Overall, it has a decent taste." 8:41PM ET

The Raven Special Lager is a perfect balanced lager beer that goes well with any kind of food, but particularly with spicy food or when you just want to sit down and enjoy a beer with friends. With a shot of Woodford Reserve chased with chilled Raven Special Lager is a near perfect combination. The rich golden colored beer is an exceptionally smooth Southern German lager, somewhat malty but well balanced between the hops and malt. Experiencing the clean finish and pleasant lingering aftertaste of The Raven Special Lager, one can truly say that The Taste Is Poetic.
